It's Been A Couple Weeks Since I've Had Time To Share What's What At The Green Shag Market. Status: Finally!
Not long ago bloggers everywhere were using machines such as this IBM to spread their particular "word" via 'zines! With such a machine one could reach 10s of...well, readers. Thank God for the 1s and 0s we publish on today.
With the great turnover at The Green Shag Market, there's always fun new items to be had. I've been
running around like a chicken with his head cut off trying to help get the new shop in St. Charles up and
running and I haven't been able to chronicle the changeover.
You might remember a few weeks ago that I took a pair of the four Peter Protzman / Herman Miller
chairs to my booth (#5) at The Green Shag. I took the other two over to the shop in St. Charles and
I was wondering where they might sell first. It was at the booth. The two there sold first, then the
buyer wanted the other pair so I had to retrieve those from the shop and take 'em to the Shag
Check out that Dorothy Thorpe drink set up top. Each piece still has it's sticker! If you are a serious
DT collector, this is a score. And if Russel Wright Steubenville is your thing, there's plenty of that here
too! I can't remember the name of the Lane line that the end table belongs to but I know it's not so
easy to find.
Like I said, there's lots of turnover here at The Shag, so if you see something specific here in these
photos you might wanna get down there pretty quick lest it be gone when you do! If you are able to
watch, there will be a spot on Great Day St. Louis (KMOV Ch. 4) Monday at 10:30am featuring The
Green Shag and an interview with Dan.
And of course I have to pimp my own booth. The pair of red chairs should soon be gone as the buyer
of the other pair wanted them as well. That will make more room and precipitate another visit to fill that
void. Does the fun ever end?!
